Call of Cthulhu: The Uncorrupted

In the chaos of World War 1,the Serbian army evacuated to the Greek islands after a death march through Albania, losing over a hundred thousand soldiers in the process. The survivors were scattered across the islands, most barely alive. Months later, the army regrouped at Corfu but teams were sent out to the other islands to find any stragglers. One team of six soldiers, barely recovered from typhus and starvation, is sent to the island of Paxos. From there, they hitch a ride on a fishing boat to the even smaller island of Antipaxos. What they find may even be more deadly than the frontlines…

Thanks to Adam Scott Glancy of Pagan Publishing for running this scenario at Gen Con 2017!

Synopsis. The horrors of the First World War did not end at the battlefield for many. Crippling injuries affected countless soldiers and civilians on both sides. In one British countryside hospital, a group of wounded soldiers begin the long journey of coming to terms with their wounds when a doctor offers them a chance at a normal life. The experimental surgery can restore missing limbs and burned skin and safely extract embedded shrapnel. It seems like a panacea for all forms of injury, but how can it possibly work? As the patients consider their options, their dreams grow strange. Their war has ended, but another one beckons…

A group of Royal Italian Army soldiers has been ordered to check up on an observation post high up in the Dolomite Mountains. The Austrian army is the least of their concerns. Deadly storms, avalanches, the cold, disease, and other hazards claim more lives than their enemies. However, as the squad approaches their goal, little do they realize that there are far worse threats than men or nature. Who is the true lord of the peaks? Find out in this special one shot recorded at Gencon 2014! Sorry about the noise, but we had to play in an open gaming room that piped in music, even late at night.

Synopsis: At Gencon 2012, we were fortunate enough to play and record the playtest of a World War 1 scenario written by Mr. Glancy and Frank Frey. In the Blegian city of Leuven, a man is murdered in an impossible manner – taken out of a locked room and thrown from a great height, his body dashed across the street a great distance away. The German occupation force wishes the murder solved quickly and without incident. To that end, they’ve assembled an unlikely task force of Belgians, Americans, and Germans. Given the backdrop of war, atrocity, and the occult, can this group of investigators find the real murderer before it’s too late?

Call of Cthulhu: The Night Mission

At Gencon this year, Caleb and I sat down for a chance to play in one of Adam Scott Glancy‘s WW1 Call of Cthulhu games. This time, we were pilots for British Army on a night time bombing mission. 3 de Havilland DH4 planes, each with a pilot and gunner. Unfortunately, one of the bombs was dropped on the wrong place and certain seals are broken. Find out what the hapless pilots awaken and if they make it back to friendly territory!
